My Thoughts On the Mike Brown Case.

I'm going to offer this about the Mike Brown situation and leave it where I place the other racial dividing issues,

 "OK We Got The Bad News, So Now What Are We Going To Do?"

As folks of color we don't support, respect, nor police our own communities. We live by stupid codes of "Don't Snitch or Get Rich Or Die Trying" all while purchasing and supporting many of the same families of America who's wealth came from their forefathers who enslaved us.

We attend parties with more frequency then our children's school meetings or events. We don't think to give our money to entrepreneurs' of color. We create, promote, celebrate, and sell death in our music and videos. While, allowing the constant streams of videos of our children beating and harming each other for fun to play in our homes or smart phones. Yet we wild out when someone guns down one of ours.

We've taught them it's OK to do so in how we treat each other.
So miss me with your sad complaints of the White Man this and the White Man that. When our children don't respect themselves and that came from Black men and women having more video games than books in their homes.

When you're really ready to attack the problems with lack of quality education, our disintegrating communities, poor use of resources, lack of true media representation, and character reorganization for men or women of color hit me up. Until then continue your complaining until late Thursday night when after celebrating a holiday which isn't really a holiday (ask my native American Brothers and Sisters) you'll go out to stand on line for BLACK FRIDAY SAVINGS ON ITEMS NOT MADE BY FOLKS OF COLOR TO INCREASE THE WEALTH OF THE VERY FOLKS YOUR COMPLAINING ABOUT TODAY.

We keep looking to others to solve our problems when the answers are us taking care of our own.

Road Trips are different in this country. We have to be smart.

In this country, we have to be more careful with the times. Things are hyper racial and when on these roads we must understand the problems...
